Image-empty-state.png

Global Mental Health is the area of research, practice, and advocacy that places priority on improving and achieving equity in mental health. Now more than ever, Global Mental Health is a growing concern in the United States and internationally. Low and middle income countries are home to more than 80% of the global population, with less than 20% containing resources to aid in mental health issues. As violence and turmoil increases in these global populations, effective treatment is important to improve the lives of people living with these disorders in all countries. Whether it be a temporary, mild condition or more persistent and serious condition, it is a concern for all humans. Join us for a discussion on mental health and its impact on global health.

Image-empty-state.png

More people are on the move now than ever before as thousands of Central American migrants have made their way to the U.S. border to flee violence at home. This rapid increase of population movement has important public health implications, and therefore requires an adequate response from the health sector. Ratified international human rights standards and conventions exist to protect the rights of migrants and refugees, including their right to health. Nevertheless, many refugees and migrants often lack access to health services and financial protection for health. Join us for a discussion on the region’s largest so-called caravan on record and its impact on global health.
